of americans that approve of president barack obama's presidency has slipped to lower than high. 48%. since taking office, obama's highest majority rating was 69%. january of 2009, seven days after his inauguration. this current obama chill may have fortified ed henry of cnn to pose this audacious question to the new president this week. >> can you envision a scenario where you don't run for free election? >> if i feel like i have made the very best decision for the american people and three years from now i look at it and my poll numbers are in the tank, and you know, because we have gone through these changes, you know, politically, i'm in a ll right. >> question, is president obama saying more than he says in this response to ed henry? >> no, i don't think so. i think this is like ronald reagan saying look, if it doesn't work out, i can go back to the ranch and chop wood and i'll be perfectly happy. he's saying something like that. he's in serious trouble for this reason. the economic policies do not appear to be working with unemployment at 10.2%, and now people are talking about a seco
that the future of the united states and asia is inextricably linked. >> president obama is in asia threw next week with stops in tokyo, singapore, shanghai, beijing. so who get as the lion's share of obama's time? china. three days out of nine replicating what happened recently at the u.n. where the president of china and president obama were closeted for 90 minutes. this time allocation speaks for itself. and if there is any doubt remaining, obama's description of the u.s./chinese relationship clears it up. >> the relationship between the united states and china will shape the 21st century, which makes it as important bilateral relationship in the world. >> question. what must president obama accomplish in china this coming week? pat? >> he'll have to rebalance the trade relationship between the united states and china. the last ten years, the chinese have had a $2 trillion surplus. we've experted to them jobs, factories, money, technology, and that's one of the reasons why we've got this financial crisis and the dollar's in such trouble. what he's got to do is convince the chinese that this
driven by the real economy or was it due to the obama stimulus, pat buchanan? >> it was due to the stimulus and also the federal reserve. they were doubling to the money supply. these are steroid shots for the american economy and it worked. looks stronger, looks a lot better, but there's steroids. the real economy hasn't really come back. this should carry us through for one or two more quarters, but then we're going to see if the private economy is coming back, and there are no real signs of that right now. you've got your unemployment hanging in there at 9.8%, jon. so i think obviously this is good news. it's helpful to a lot of people, but i don't think it's conclusive proof that the real economy's come back. >> the stimulus helped, right? >> the stimulus helped. they have expired or the real estate credit is about to expire, but it's good news that government intervention actually did rescue us from the precipice, but what happens when these programs fade away? is there enough confidence in the economy to sustain this recovery? i think that's why president obama was sor
] >> exit question. will president obama's plans for immigration reform be set back by the fallout from the fort hood killing, yes or no? >> he's not going to go forward with immigration reform. if he did, it would be set back. >> eleanor? >> immigration reform is a next-year project at the very least. they will continue with it. we're still dealing with 12 million people in the country. we need to know more about who they are. this just gives impetus. this was a u.s. citizen who was born here and has nothing to do with immigration. >> but he's a muslim. >> so what. >> hold on. hold on. >> believes as you do. >> in what way, pat? how is that dangerous? >> go down to fort hood. >> how about christians? christians ever kill each other? >> have you heard of the irish catholic clashes? >> stop baiting buchanan. >> he's baiting me, john. >> go ahead. >> it is not gonna have an effect on the president's immigration initiatives, but i think, you know, this whole conversation about well, it's america's fault, we're on the ground in iraq, we're on the ground in afghanistan, they hit us on 9/11 b
unless the senate puts the pedal to the metal and moves this legislation forward. president obama has already signed on. >> the this issue are over. >> question. if the u.s. does agree to sign a kobeen hagen agreement, what impact will that have on u.s. jobs, pat buchanan? >> i don't think it will have any impact, john, because i don't think it will get through the united states senate. there's a reason for that, john. al gore's moment has come and gone. the truth is, they are changing the nile to climate change rather than global warming for a reason. for ten years, the earth has been cooling. 1998 or so was the hottest year. the polar bear population is doing fine. antarctica is growing, the ice cap is growing. the arctic ice cap has stopped shrinking. you look around the united states, you are having record cold trends. you have this tremendous real problem in the american economy as opposed toed mythical problem of global warming. for these reasons, john, i think it's not going to get through the senate. i think, as i say, al gore's moment has passed. this whole thing was a bit of
